Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) dedicates her life to protecting the public images of the nation's elite and making sure their secrets never get out. Olivia is a former White House Communications Director for the president, but has left to start her own crisis management firm, Olivia Pope and Associates. She is hoping to begin a new chapter of her life, but is finding out that she cannot leave parts of her past behind without having a definite soft side.
Girl... What you mean you don't watch Scandal??? Listen here, you need to take three days, get some water and sit down and don't move, believe me you won't want to once you start to watch.  I had a girlfriend who had the nerve, the nerve to say the show was boring, Gut reaction : kick her, kick her hard then I calmed down and I was like, sit down shut up and watch from the beginning.  By episode six she was screaming at the tv, threw herself fully into watching the series and is now a full on Scandal addict. It's all over the twitter-verse, every Thursday like clockwork people log on and tweet all the craziness taking place all while watching the show. It's awesome.
I can't even begin to explain Olivia Pope's fashion sense, hair that is alway and I mean always on point, she knows & handles her business like no one else, and THAT is why she's the fixer.

Every week's episode shows us a little more about the key players all the while giving us new cases and shwocasing some seriously good & camplicated love story.  People all have sides and ain't nobody here for Mellie or Sally. But you gotta watch the show to even begin to understand what I'm talking about.

We joke among my friends that it takes about 20 to 30 mins to even begin to come down from the Scandal high after the episode and then another 30 to even begin to really process what just happened. Shonda Rimes & her writing crew are beyond Brilliant and they couldn't have picked a better actress than Kerry Washington or President Ghost as many of us have taken to calling him ( he starred in the movie Ghost with Patrick Swayze as the bad guy) but OMG he is so good.  The cast is beyond phenomenal with a great mix of fresh faces adn well known ones & they each play  embody their characters so well you can't believe that this is just a tv show

Take yourself over to the places listed above, get caught up and I will see you in another week for the next episode. You can thank me later.
